If you’re active on Goodreads, you’ve probably set yourself a reading challenge for the year. I actually started the year with a goal to read 50 books, and coming out of April I have already read 45 books!!! I am definitely leagues ahead of where I thought I would be for reading this year, so I think it’s time to reevaluate my reading goal and set myself up for the next 2/3 of the year.
If you follow me over on Instagram you might have seen the little post I put up last night about changing my goal from 50 books to 120 books. If I wanted to achieve this goal then I would need to read around 9 or 10 books per month for the rest of the year.
Am I scared and daunted by the idea of reading 120 books this year? FRICKITY FRACK YES I AM! That’s a craaaaaazy amount of books to attempt reading. But, is it going to be worth it to push myself to achieve something awesome? Definitely.
At this stage I am currently 5 books ahead of schedule, which gives me a little bit of buffer room. I’m hoping to keep my reading pace up so I can smash out 120 books easily.
